 Item Effect
The Lightning (Bolt) item appears in Super Smash Bros. Brawl and comes from Mario Kart, another Nintendo franchise. This item acts as it would in the Mario Kart franchise, shrinking your opponents once it is grabbed. It can be tricky at times where it will turn around and end up shrinking only you instead of your opponents and leaving you wide open for attacks (it may also enlarge your opponents). But if it works properly all your opponents will shrink and feel an effect similar to the Poison Mushroom. It can sometimes attack everyone, friend or foe.
Since it's similar to the Poison Mushroom in effect, the strategy is similar too, except that you'll want to run, jump, and dodge your way toward it as fast as possible. Once your opponents are shrinked, go after them. Keep on attacking relentlessly as their power and weight is reduced significantly. This is a very easy way to pick up quick KOs on multiple opponents. The only thing you need to be careful of is that it will sometimes backfire on you and either turn only you small, or turn everyone else big. In the case of the latter, you will want to follow the defense strategy techniques of a Super Mushroom while you will want to follow the defense strategy techniques of a Poison Mushroom for the former.
